    My husband was kind, loving, affectionate, calm nature and patient when we met. Last year I was seeing a lot of doctors due to serious health issues t started menopause. He was starting to lose patience because my libido went down. He wanted more oral, more of me initiating sex. He has a super high libido. He started to withdraw his affectionate and become irritable and serious, criticizes my friends, pouts if I go to see a friend occasionally because he’s left home alone not wants to come with me. I have to discuss meeting afóreme or calling one with him first. I kept asking for the affection he used to give me. He says he tried that and it didn’t work to help me initiate sex more often with him. I decided to put in serious effort to ensure we did it at least four times per week, but it didn’t motivate him to be affectionate and romantic again, but he was in a better mood. I wrote a letter saying we were both at fault and that I would like to make an honest effort to heal the relationship up and hoped he was interested, but he thought my letter was ridiculous. Now he barely my talks to me, and tries to make me feel guilty if I spend too much time on the phone with a friend. Yes, I spent a few hours on the phone consoling a grieving friend at night. It was the second phone conversation with her in a year and he was angry because he was bored while waiting for me when we could have been making love. If I try to initiate sex he’s not interested anymore. He’s just so angry. What is so hard is that he’s always willing to help by taking time off of work to accompany me to the doctor, pick me up at the airport, do the dishes, and helping around the house. We both have been going to therapy for over a year now and it’s not helping.

    I truly don’t think anyone on this forum is qualified or will be able to help. Your issues are complicated.
